Webinar: The Evolution of the Finance Function

Category: Webinar

In today’s highly competitive business environment, companies need more from their accounting and finance people than accurate financial statements and reports. Developments in information technology are allowing management accountants to extend their role to include finance business partnering.

Finance business partnering makes an important contribution to improving decision making and ensuring value creation within an organisation.

In this webinar Filip and Kristof will explore the two most important evolutions in the finance function and how they are interrelated:

  • The finance function as a strategic business partner
  • Automation and digitalisation in the finance function

Together they will share some interesting cases that will help clarify what business partnering is all about and how big data and financial analytics will impact the role of finance professionals for the future.
